1Preheat the oven to 350°F. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned, 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to a cutting board and let cool; cut into thin strips.
2In the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and their juice, the garlic, chipotle and cumin and cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes; stir in the pork and chopped cilantro.
3Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Brush one side of each tortilla with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Working in batches, cook the tortillas oiled side down until grill marks form, 1 to 2 minutes.
4Arrange 4 tortillas grilled side down on a baking sheet. Divide the pork mixture among the tortillas and sprinkle with the cheese. Top with the remaining tortillas, grilled side up. Bake until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Cut into wedges and top with the cilantro leaves, cotija cheese, and tomatillo salsa.
A simple but delicious version of Japanese ramen, this soup starts with pork cooked to perfect tenderness in the crock pot, with garlic, ginger, leeks, mushrooms, and onions rounding out the flavors. The noodles are cooked separately just before serving, then the shredded pork and fragrant broth, with a little soy and sesame oil added, are ladled over top. A soft boiled egg makes a great garnish, as do shredded scallions or chopped baby spinach. Add some chile oil or Sriracha if you want to spice things up.

Easy BBQ Baby Back Pork Ribs
You don't have to baby-sit a smoker to get perfect barbecue baby back ribs. You can coat these with a spicy-sweet rub and oven roast them while you make an easy BBQ sauce. Then finish the ribs on the grill (up to 2 days later), where the barbecue sauce caramelizes into a glaze and the ribs get a hint of smoke. A Chowhound BBQ favorite.
